About this book

Erhard Scheibe is one of the most outstanding German philosophers of science. He has written extensively on all the problems that confront the philosophy of mathematics and physics: rationalism versus empiricism, the laws of nature, and reductionism. He has published books on the logical foundations of quantum mechanics and on the reduction of physical theories. Little of his work has been translated into English. This collection of 38 essays is intended to remedy this omission and to help to make Erhard Scheibe's philosophical ideas better known to an international audience.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This volume contains 38 selected papers by Erhard Scheibe. … This book is highly recommended to all physicists who like to contemplate about their science. The author … knows the language of mathematicians and physicists and explains the philosophy in a very readable and illuminating style. The topics of the collected articles meet central points of the philosophy of nature, the theory of knowledge, and the theory of science." (K.-E. Hellwig, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1088 (14), 2006)
